Chapter 5-28 Snape's Worst Memory
- The next day there's an announcement stating Umbridge has replaced
Dumbledore. Draco tells them he's
member of the Inquisitorial Squad
and takes points of Gryffindor House. Fred and George tell them that
Montague also wanted to dock points but they
threw him in the Vanishing Cabinet.
They don't care anymore about getting in trouble and plan to do some
- Filch tells Harry that Umbridge
wants to see him. Harry is brought to her office. Umbridge offers Harry
something to drink but Harry is suspicious and pretends to drink. Umbridge
asks him where Dumbledore and Sirius are but Harry says he doesn't know.
Umbridge believes him but warns him that all communications are watched,
except for her own fireplace. Next thing, there's a loud BOOM.
- Downstairs someone seemed to have set of an enormous crate of enchanted
fireworks, probably it was Fred
and George. Umbridge tries a ¤
Stupefy to stun a fireworks rocket but it only makes it worse,
exploding with tremendous force. All over the castle there's fireworks
and classes are completely disturbed for the rest of the day.
- At night in the common room Fred and George tell them they used all
of their Weasley's Wildfire
Whiz-bangs and are taking orders for their new products, among which
a Basic Blaze Box and a Deflagration Deluxe. Harry drowses into sleep
and has his corridor dream again. He goes
through the circular room and opens a door and entering a long rectangular
room full of an odd mechanical clicking and flecks of light on the walls.
He goes on to the end of the room and opens a door. He enters a dimly
lit Hall high and wide as a church,
containing rows of shelves with dusty spunn-glass spheres. There's something
in this room he really wants badly, his Scar
is hurting. Next thing, he's woken up by a fireworks.
- The next day when Harry goes to his Occlumency
lesson, he meets with Cho and they
have an argument. Arriving in his office, Snape
is putting some of his memories into the Pensieve.
Before they start Draco rushes in, calling Snape because Umbridge needs
his help, Montague has been found. Snape leaves with Draco. Harry's
attention falls on the Pensieve and he looks into it seeing one of Snape's
- In the memory they have OWLs.
Harry sees his father James Potter
and Sirius and some girl eyeing
hopefully at Sirius. He also sees Lupin
and Pettigrew. Flitwick
tells the students time is up and to put down their quills, he specifically
tells someone called Stebbins to
put it down too. James is playing with a golden Snitch.
James seems to be full of himself. James and Sirius pick on Snape. With
a ¤ Expelliarmus James disarms
Snape and with a ¤ Impedimenta
he freezes him. With a ¤ Scourgify
he 'washes Snape's mouth' but then Harry's mother Lily
Evans appears and tells them to leave Snape alone. Snape recovers
and hits James with a jinx. James charms Snape upside down but lets
him go when Lily tells him to. Snape goes for his wand again but Sirius
uses a ¤ Petrificus Totalus
to freeze Snape again. James seems to be very conceited and arrogant.
- Next thing, Harry is out of the memory. Snape is back in the office.
Harry is sent away and told not to come in his office ever again.
